Allen Trieu National Recruiting Analyst

Projection

Power 4 Starter

Has played safety, corner, receiver, return man and some wildcat quarterback in high school. Has above average size and plays physically. Will put his face in the action in run support and will get his hands on receivers if playing man to man. Receiver background helps in his ball skills. Versatile and can play deep in the secondary or come into the box as well as match-up one on one with slots and tight ends. Most likely projection is safety, but it is not out of the question a school could try him as a big corner. Track background speaks to his athleticism and has enough straight line speed to recover and run down plays.

H.S. Athletic Background

Spent first three-seasons at University of Detroit Jesuit before transferring to Belleville for the second semester of his junior season. Four-time AAU Junior Olympian in track and a three-time All-State hurdler. Clocked a 14.47 in the 100m hurdles and a 39.05 in the 300m hurdles. Finished his junior season with 66 tackles, three interceptions and 11 pass breakups. Caught 43 passes, had 1,653 all-purpose yards and 18 total touchdowns on offense.
